I can’t figure out Glenn Beck.
On the one hand, you could argue he is doing more to educate the American public about the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and the nation’s founding principles than anyone else in media today.
On the other hand, you could argue that he makes sweeping statements that seem to stand those principles on their head – such as when he argued with Bill O’Reilly that “same-sex marriage” wouldn’t hurt America.
On the one hand, you could argue he is inspiring more Americans for the need to return to God and faith than anyone else in America today.
On the other hand, you could argue that his political advice is moving strongly in a libertarian and materialistic direction and away from the eternal principles and precepts of a more traditional conservatism.
Beck is so popular and his fans so devoted that they don’t allow much room for constructive criticism from friendlies who recognize the value of much of what he has to offer.
And few conservatives vying themselves for TV face time and access are willing to chide Beck when he needs it, because he is a celebrity of immense power and influence.
